At the risk of this next sentence sounding all spiritual and holy, I’m going to say it anyway. The hardest thing about being in a tough spot financially is not having the freedom and joy of giving to those in need. We’ve been the recipients of some Jesus-love (sounds so much better than “charity”) these past couple days, and while there’s something amazing (and humbling) about that, it’s soooooo much more fun being on the other end.
Giving is just addicting once you get going.
God graciously reminded me this morning that I DO have a way I can give! My stash from Cambodia isn’t gone yet! (If you weren’t around for the other “Bloggy Bazaars,” I bought a bunch of stuff in Cambodia and Thailand–some from fair trade shops, some not–then I sold it to all of you and gave the proceeds to the ministries we were blessed to work with over there.)
I don’t have exact figures handy, but we’ve been able to give hundreds of dollars to the Boys’ Center in Cambodia and G.R.O.W. (our friend Faa’s ministry) in Thailand. So exciting.
So here we go. This is the perfect opportunity to help some beautiful kiddos in need AND bless a special someone (even yourself!) with a unique little gift from a foreign land.
First come, first served. Tell me what you want in the comments (we’ll work out payment/shipping costs via e-mail). Thanks for being a blessing, friends!
